Photographer's Note

Back in Ireland with a view of the ancient monastic site of Glendalough. If you go to Dublin, this site is definitely worth a visit and is only an hour south of the city in County Wicklow.
Nestled at the bottom of a valley and bordered by two lakes (Gleann Dá Locha "means" The Valley of two lakes ") is a small haven of peace and one understands immediately what attracted Saint Kevin who came to settle in the region to live as a hermit. He was soon joined by devotees and thus was born the village. It would prosper 'til the XIIth century. Beautiful manuscripts were written in Glendalough. Life was prosperous and the monastery soon became a high cultural place.
Today the charm of this city, dominated by its round tower which served as a bell tower and place of retreat in case of attack, is still operating.
If you like walking, if you are a hiker, even a beginner, then you can enjoy the superb climbing up to two lakes located there, the trails are well marked.
